Due to the nature of breaking deals and getting them out to everyone as soon as possible, please refer to our Instagram page where we post the latest and greatest offers currently available. Act fast though, as deals posted can be gone in a matter of minutes depending on how hot they are!


To find the cheapest available dates, search in Google Flights like shown below in the sample. Some of the lower prices may not show up on the calendar, so be sure to click around the calendar to find if your dates work. Allow Google Flights some time to complete searches (about 10 seconds)  to ensure you are seeing all of the results. Note: as shown in the second example below, be sure to select the "Overhead bin access" button if you wish to see prices where you can bring a carry on. If this is not selected, you won't be able to bring anything except a personal item with you on the plane!


Fares listed can disappear within as little as a few minutes. If you've entered in your dates and all of the correct information and are still not seeing the deal price, it likely means that the deal is gone. Generally speaking; and what we've seen over time; are flights that are booked at least 30 days in advance are priced best on Tuesday afternoon/evening and Wednesdays. Of course this is not always the case as airlines can change pricing as they see fit and we've seen some phenomenal last minute deals pop up.

Reminder: The Jet Lag Junkie does not receive referral fees from Google Flight's or any other booking site. We are here solely to find you great deals from across the globe!
